After a season of racing our 2018 team bikes are now up for sale. These bikes have been ridden since the beginning of April, only ever in races (each rider also has their own training bike). On this particular bike there are no marks or scratches at all- it has been kept in excellent condition throughout the season.
There are plenty of great bikes that offer flexibility, a relaxed, neutral position and mellow handling. The Orbea Orca is not one of them – it is about the total pursuit of high performance. It is aimed squarely at those riders who are looking to ride fast – sure, it needs to have enough comfort to enable you to ride quickly over long distances on sub-optimal road surfaces, and it succeeds brilliantly in that area, but the absolute top priorities in its design are speed, handling and agility.
We have race tested the Orca OMR in all conditions, over a vast range of different terrains (including mountains, flat-lands, cobbles and rolling countryside) – and have yet to discover its limits. The performance of the Orca is simply stunning in every scenario. Climbing, blasting along on the flat, sprinting, descending…it just doesn’t matter what you throw at it. The Orca delivers brilliantly in every way – responsiveness, comfort, high-speed handling, low-speed line changing, hammer down, sitting and cruising.
